Holiday Sessions

1992
What started as a Heavy Petting Zoo reunion recording quickly transitioned to an incredible original writing session. Seano and Tony Paul were home from Atlanta for the Holidays. Steve Guida and I were itching to jam. What resulted is some very powerful renditions of some HPZ songs as well as some classic originals that would be used on later projects. The ever-jam-hungry Greg Gribben was there to lend his guitar, keyboards and songwriting. The classic "Heat Miser" was recorded here in a very haphazard but effective way. It turned out SO good that we never could duplicate the energy of this version - ever. A few songs with pal Chris Hixon are scattered throughout and are still great to listen to. "Shadow Lake" was another classic about our favorite school: Fairport High. Great songs!
